Celani Replication Report Published — Radiation Detected (Jeff Morriss)

Jeff Morriss has published a report on the LENR-Forum titled “Celani-Type Ni + H2 Replication” in which he reports an experiment that attempts to replicate the work of Francesco Celani.

Morriss put a wound nickel wire inside a sealed quartz tube loaded with hydrogen. He then described the experiment as follows:

“An initial H2 pressure of 5 Torr was introduced with the cell at room temperature. Almost immediately the pressure began to drop, indicating that the Ni was absorbing H2. The cell was maintained at room temperature for approx. 30 minutes, at which time the H2 pressure had stabilized after dropping ~10% from its initial value. The cell was then powered at 10.0V, 15.0V and 20.0V, corresponding to Ni wire temperatures of 312, 398, and 498 °C, respectively. Each of the three temperatures was maintained for 30 minutes. At the end of the last heating cycle power to the Ni wire was turned off.”

Morriss reports that radiation was detected as the wire heated up. Here’s a chart from the paper showing the readings of the Geiger counter he used:

    Brilliant, well done Jeff!

    • Ged

      Wonder if his equipment logged the spectrum. That could be very informative. Also good to do calibration of the detector with another heat source of equal magnitude and distance, to baseline correct for any heating artifacts in the detector.

      The community is getting there now!

      • Bob Greenyer

        I think that is the plan for next experiments – to do spectra to determine the nature of the signal – not least to discount Radon.

        Oh, yeh… we’re getting there.

  • Mike Henderson

    I am curious, what is the magnetic field profile inside of a coiled coil? And if two coils are prepared and the larger outer coil is turned in opposite directions (relative to the direction of finer coiling), does the induced field cancel / add? My head spins and Google fails me.

    I would like to see a DC voltage drop added to the coiled heater around the glowstick so the magnetic field has both an oscillating component (from AC) and a fixed-directional component.

  • Question to Jeff: Have you tried pouring (Oxidated) water on the cell during operation?
    If so, what happened?

    (This is one of these jokes that’ll take a few weeks or months to appreciate)

  • Pekka Janhunen

    It’s a preliminary result, but the approach looks professional. Hopefully he can find the instruments he’s planning to use in the next phase.

    • Bob Greenyer

      Alan could lend him one of the Scintillators we have

  • To catch a ‘radon flea’ one merely needs to place a paper filter, a piece of tissue will suffice or coffee filter over a computer cpu fan, attending to details to direct airlfow through the filter. Run the fan for a few to many hours and place the filter on your trusty geiger counter… voila radon fleas will be revealed with characteristic decay curves.

    • Bob Greenyer

      Hi Russ, You are missing the suggestion by obvious below to get a whole vacuum cleaner full of dust next to the detector.

      • Au contraire, try both methods and you will see which one works, the time trusted method or the arm chair social media pundit method… this problem is far more expansive than the topic of radon fleas.

        • Bob Greenyer

          The other option is to replace the wire with platinum and re-run.

          • Well before rebuilding the working system I hope he runs it much more with some variations. The idea that the signal is a radon flea is not likely… as for methods for collecting and studying radon fleas the method I mentioned has been common practice and used for decades while looking at vacuum bags full of room dust is not an established practice, my point was don’t reinvent very well tested and trusted tools.

          • Bob Greenyer

            We are arranging to send him our scintillator and some lead bricks, then he can discriminate using the spectra.

        • Obvious

          FWIW, I was talking about testing to see if bumping the gamma detector counts by 5 to 7 times by dust was reasonable or easily testable, not seeing what a radon decay looks like.

          I think we are all “arm chair social media pundit”s when we show up here.

          I also consider that you are in effect suggesting building a small vacuum cleaner.

  • passerby

    Celani wire replications seem to reliably produce radiation, given this news and the replications done by mfmp and me356.

    Is there an article that summarizes all of these recent replications done with this type, something of an executive summary fit for sharing on social media? If not I think there should be.

    • Bob Greenyer

      We may do one – at the moment the development is so fast by both Jeff and Me356

      We are hopefully going to get the scintillator used on GS5.2 to Jeff and we are trying to arrange to send a scintillator to me356 at the moment.

      I suspect the type of emissions will be similar to those seen in the GS5.2, photons of a wide range of energies.

  • Sanjeev

    Me356 is reporting another Celani wire replication, successful and this time with both excess heat and radiation. My kind of news 🙂

    • Sanjeev

      Me further writes here:
      For last few months I have made many of these reactors, all with the
      similar design, different size, … And each one generated excess heat.

      Calibrations and post-calibrations and all kinds of measurements were
      done with expensive equipments so there is not a big room for an errors.

      • Mats002

        Repeated many times!

        Congratulations me356!

      • JiW

        “all kinds of measurements were done with expensive equipments”

        In future, I’d rather see the above expressed as “well-designed measurements with appropriate equipment”. “all kinds” and “expensive” won’t guarantee anything.

    • LuFong

      I’m really looking forward to these results. Me356’s efforts have always impressed me and he seems to have a good understanding of what is going on. It looks to me like he has (with MFMP’s help) attained MFMP’s goal of producing a inexpensive and reproducible LENR generator. It will be interesting to hear his comments on Matt Lewan’s theory as well.

      • Bob Greenyer

        damn FB with the editing thing – I’ll get them re-posted – will have lost descriptions though

  • Sanjeev

    Jeff is taking the claim back, he thinks the radiation is because of dust.
